    Saw this and took a picture, since I didn't know they made the 3 this way. Can't find any info on Tesla site. Anyone know anything about it, pricing, performance etc.? Huge tires on black turbine rims. Sure looked sinister!

    I haven’t seen work this classy since high school; usually involved Acura or Honda badging.

    I think what we have here is the equivalent of owners slapping M badges all over everything in the BMW community, on anything but an M car.

    Looks like a rolling billboard. Needs a few more badges.

    symmetry is beauty

    model and trim badges ruin symmetry.

    model and trim badges, therefore, destroy beauty.

    Not to mention making the car harder to clean properly, and existing only to impress strangers.

    P75D would be more accurate. I see LR on the left side badge, so even P75D would be incorrect. :D

    Can’t fault people for doing it though. It’s a form of flattery; they do it cause they consider those vehicles in high regard. Happens in the Mustang community as well; putting Cobra badges on a V6 or GT.

    He's taken inspiration from Porsche. You don't need a turbo to have a factory badged turbo vehicle. It's just a trim package.

    100D just means he got the expensive one.

    So....its not real. Sure looked the part! Wider than stock tires on 20" rims. Suspension looked lowered too. Made me google it, so I guess I was fooled....or curious if it existed.

    Presumably the Type-R badge has yet to arrive in the post.

    One of my favourite photos. Heavy irony that only some people would understand (only some non-TMC people- everyone here would get it).

    So I can't pop P135D on the back of mine? Would raise a few smiles amongst those who know. And cast doubt in the minds of those who don't.
